Three Reasons to Choose the Abridor Box Opener

Improved Efficiency

This fully automated case cutting machine streamlines operations and improves warehouse efficiency. Faster box opening corresponds to improved productivity.

Better Reliability

By combining a ruggedized PLC with durable materials, Abridor provides better reliability on the production floor. You can count on the Abridor box opening Machine.

Fault Tolerance

The box opening machine automatically detects faulty boxes, lid jam-ups, and other errors to alert operators accordingly. Built-in fault tolerance decreases risk of errors.

Global Delivery and Support

We provide exceptional products with the support to back them up, which is why Distrobycs is a leader in worldwide automation solutions. Our global reach allows us to deliver and install our range of automated warehouse robots directly to your facility and provide ongoing support throughout the machine’s lifecycle.

Saves Labour Costs, Improves Safety

The Abridor automatic box opening machine saves labour costs by delegating the rote task of box opening to a fully automated system. Not only does the machine open boxes much faster than a human counterpart, but its built-in safety features protect technician safety when any operation requires manipulation. When operators open the protective hood, Abridor automatically disables all moving parts in the system.

Easy Integration into Your Production Line

The Abridor easily integrates into any manufacturing setting because it’s built with flexibility and operability in mind. Your engineering team can program any new box type to be opened efficiently. The Abridor then automatically recognizes the box type when a box enters the unit. In addition to providing full customizability, this feature also lets engineers adapt by continually adding any new box types to the database.

Careful Cutting Lets You Reuse Boxes

The Abridor is designed with the goal of recycling good boxes, allowing you to re-use them for shipment worldwide. Its precision instrumentation carefully cuts boxes without damaging them. This amounts to significant annual savings in material costs and operational


The Distrobycs Abridor is an automatic box cutter machine that replaces manual box cutting operations at scale. Manufacturers, transportation services, and other industries rely on this automated system to consistently speed up production without sacrificing quality.

This flexible solution accepts boxes of variable dimensions by recognizing boxes by using a COGNEX IN-SIGHT 9000 vision inspection system and then loads the corresponding program from a pre-programmed database.

An installed PLC runs the program from start to finish: from the moment the package enters the inline, pass-through unit to the point where the contents eject from one conveyor and the empty box is closed and goes out a different conveyor, where the robotic system then arranges boxes on a pallet. An alarm notification system provides visual signalling after detecting a faulty box, a jam-up of the lid, if the lid is stuck and the product is still inside the box, or if there is nothing inside the box. The system does not allow boxes to collide.

Whenever they need to physically interact with the system, Abridor automatically ceases all mechanical movements in order to ensure operational safety. Abridor opens boxes at a rate of 120 cartons per hour, making it one the fastest carton opening machines on the market.

It’s 314 stainless steel construction and plexiglass guarding parts ensures durability and personnel safety. It’s no wonder that industries throughout Australia and the world rely on Robycs Technology to bring their ideas to life with robotic automation technology.

The Abridor integrates perfectly with the AutoPallet palletizing machine, which integrates into the final exit stage of the Abridor.

The cut boxes from the Abridor can then be re-sealed by the SmartSeal by Distrobycs. This saves both waste and the expense of buying new boxes.
